Wholehearted mistake

The sign said stop
but we went on, wholehearted.
It ended bad,
but I love what we started.

Yes, the same lyrics that bothered me before. Upon further consideration, I believe that they actually can work. It’s the comma after “on” that makes it okay. You can read it as “but we went on, [and were] wholehearted” and it works. As English text I still think it should be “wholeheartedly” and “badly,” but as song lyrics, I’ve made my peace with them.
